Research Fellowship in Autonomic Service-Oriented Computing for Smart Cities

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Trinity College Dublin’s Distributed Systems Group to investigate the provision of a new service-oriented computing infrastructure that provides demand-based composition of software services interacting with a city-wide, dynamic network infrastructure. The project will investigate autonomic adaptation of services and infrastructure, ensuring resilient service provision within an integrated, city-wide system.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or a closely-related discipline and strong C++/C#/Java development skills. Experience with autonomic computing, service-oriented middleware, and/or smart city technologies is desirable as are strong mathematical skills.

The project is supported by Science Foundation Ireland under the Principal Investigator programme between 2014-2018 and will be conducted in collaboration with Cork Institute of Technology and Intel Intelligent Cities Lab. The position is tenable immediately.

Please apply by email to Siobhan.Clarke@scss.tcd.ie quoting “Smart Cities Fellowship” in the subject line. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, in PDF format, giving full details of qualifications and experience, together with the names of two referees. The closing date for applications is the 30th April, 2017.
Trinity College is an equal opportunities employer.


We are interested in facilitating potential PhD students to apply for their own funding (e.g., IRC, Marie Curie, etc. more information here). DSG works on topics related to networking, services and machine learning with a focus on smart cities applications. Some topics of interest are Service Oriented Computing, Smart Cities, Multi Agent Systems and collaboration. Further information on PhD in TCD’s Computer Science department can be found here.

We have also had visiting researchers and interns in the past and can do so again.
